Very tasty! I, also, didn't have seasame seed oil, so I used a bit of olive and canola oil. Really light for a pasta and the lemon gives it a really refreshing taste!


Definitely a keeper. Really tasty, and easy to make. I didn't have sesame oil, so I used tahini instead, which worked well, but it made the pasta a bit pastey. Nothing a touch more lime juice couldn't fix, though.
